The Fish Market

In another corner of the port, you can see the Fish Market. It was built in 1929 and is where fish is sold to retailers, fish hawkers, fishmongers, restaurants and wholesalers. The fish is auctioned off very loudly...with a lot of yelling! The fish sold here comes primarily from the fishing boats of Molfetta, Brindisi, Vasto and Termoli. Those arched windows make the building look like a little bit of Venice right here in Molfetta!

Molfetta looks like a lovely city. I don't know that part of Italy very well at all.
